Discounted merchandise websites are all the rage these days and the loyalty programs are getting in on promoting the top sites. Earlier this week we saw Gilt and Continental/United team up to offer 1,500 miles for a first purchase from the discount site (and 5 miles per dollar on all purchases) and now American Express is offering a $20 statement credit when you make a purchase from discount retailer Vente-Privee.
Simply register here and once you make a purchase $20 will come off your Amex statement. You can even stack this promo with the current Amex Gift Chain promotion, which will give you an additional gift for shopping – multiple dipping at its finest!
I wasn’t impressed with the slection at Vente-Privee (there are only three retailers participating this morning), but they rotate through different vendors so look out for any that might interest you before 12/31/11.
T&C While this premium card has one of the highest annual fees on the market, it has several valuable perks that could make it worthwhile, depending on your travel patterns. These include a $200 annual airline rebate, lounge access, free Hilton Gold status and free Starwood Preferred Guest Gold status.
* Terms and conditions: To redeem this offer, you must use any eligible American Express ® Card to make your first purchase at vente-privee.com (vente-privee.com) through 12/31/2011. An Eligible Card is defined as a valid American Express Credit or Charge Card, in good standing and not in default, issued in the U.S. either by American Express or by a licensed third party bank issuer of American Express-branded Cards. Certain Cards are not deemed Eligible Cards, including American Express Cards issued in the U.S. by Department Stores National Bank, Prepaid Cards (including, without limitation, American Express Gift Cards and Serve cards) and American Express Corporate Cards. If your Card is replaced during the promotional period, please call the customer service number on the back of your Card for assistance. Statement credit will be issued approximately 6-8 weeks after the qualifying purchase is charged to your Card account. Your ability to earn rewards may be based on the amount of your purchase after the statement credit has been applied. Individual rewards program terms and conditions apply. If the purchase(s) is subject to finance charges, finance charges will accrue on the total amount of the purchase(s) prior to the application of the statement credit.
